On Saturday, Howie Carr posted an opinion piece at the Boston Herald about the impact of the open borders policy of the Biden administration. He shares the information provided to him from a friend and also from someone who is dealing directly with the results of the open southern border.
The article reports:
The other day, a former radio coworker of mine sent me this photo from the Holiday Inn in Marlboro with its vaguely ominous sign:
“Hotel Closed to Public.”
I tweeted out the photo with a brief explanation of what had happened. I was surprised when the photo got far more clicks than anything I’ve ever posted.
The next day, the “hotel” removed the sign and replaced it with something smaller and slightly less obvious.
“Hotel Is Currently Closed.”
The article then goes on to share the firsthand experiences of someone working in a hotel impacted by illegal immigration:
What follows is an account from someone who works in a different one of these “converted” hotels which are decimating the entire communities around them.
This report has been lightly edited to protect the source from retribution by the woke comrades:
There are 200-plus families, he begins, and more than 500 people currently living at the (facility).
It’s not only a roof over their heads and three squares a day, but “free” diapers, wipes, toiletries, free tablets and phones, free English lessons, state case workers making sure all entitlements are taken, free Uber and Lyft rides, free bus passes from (redacted).
All with no end in sight.
All are going to the (redacted) immigration office in Ubers… round trip is more than $130 per trip.
All get DTA (Department of Transitional Assistance, i.e., welfare) benefits, EBT cards. They have more expendable cash than I do.
If DCF (Department of Children & Families) says they need a crib, stroller, toys, etc., management is required order them. Everything is new and arrives the next day from Amazon.
They all have MassHealth, free legal services, free tax-filing services.
Most now have Social Security cards and many are getting work permits, as many have been in the “shelter” for months.
They are learning they can make more on DTA than from working.
The biggest cost that you can’t put a price tag on is the burden on the schools and public-safety budgets.
We daily have local police or fire at the hotel. Police have had to help with fights, guns, drugs, overdoses….
Please follow the link to the article to see what a disaster this has been for the people living in Massachusetts and other places where illegal immigrants are being welcomed.
The article concludes:
Import the Third World, become the Third World.
Elections have consequences. Catastrophic elections have catastrophic consequences.
